Blue, I've been a registered member for over 16 years now. I was a lurker before that but never registered. I saw your site a few times during the time it was Blue's Quake Rag but never really followed you. Your site has been my homepage for 15+ years.

It's hard to believe you've been around this long. It's hard to believe I've been coming to a single website this long as well. I hope your format never changes! This site has been through some hard times. I remember the UGO debacle. The first time ads started taking over your entire screen and your tireless efforts to have meaningful ads.

To this day, your site is the only site that is whitelisted in my adblocker. Here's to another 20 years!

Hi Blue!

First post - I've been lurking since '96!

It's a great night for GOT fans. Enjoy!

Blues news has been my homepage for upwards of 17 years now!

Ok... I seemed to have fixed it. I had to reselect the "theme" from the left bar. I guess it forgot the settings somehow? I don't know...

I'm having trying to post this, hopefully it works. Blue, I am not sure if this an issue on my end but the CSS no longer loads on your site in Chrome.

I've tried everything from refreshing cache to rebooting and everything in between. It also seems like this is the only site having an issue. All other sites work fine.

Leonard Nimoy has died aged 83. As a very infrequent Star Trek viewer, he was my favourite.

May he live long and prosper wherever he went! \\//

Saw this dress on Reddit. Turns out, the dress is literally blue/black and the photo is severely overexposed and color shifted. I personally see it as bluish-white/gold in the original photo but the links below provide more info:

The guy who knows nothing about football is doing quite well! People at work are asking for my advice picking teams for the pool. They think I am lying when I tell them to just pick their favorite team name or mascot.

Me too! (I'm on there as Whisperfang) I know how football is played and know most if not all of the rules, but I almost NEVER keep up with teams. Sports don't really interest me. As I said in an OotB a few days ago, I picked the only two I know anything about and then for the rest of the games I picked the underdogs.

Ok, so our Pick'em group. I'm ranked #2 and while I didn't choose randomly, I might as well have! I picked two teams that I know, and the rest of the matchups, i simply picked the underdog. How the hell do I get to be rank #2? Even in ESPN total standings I'm ranked 2290ish out of over a million signups. I just don't get it...

I don't really follow sports all that much but this year I decided to do some pigskin pick'ems with you guys. I know almost nothing about the teams so I was picking blindly pretty much. I am not sure how I got to the 75% by doing that...

Looks like Falcons winning will upset a LOT of picks...

I'm not getting this because it's b/w. If I could change it, I'd probably get it.

I enjoyed the hell out of it. It's meant to be a co-op game. I played with a friend and we had a freaking blast. I had no qualms about paying $50 for the epic pack.

Well that was a rather boring read. Newell's answers are (mostly) botlike. Got the jive that he would rather be doing anything else with his time...

That's basically every AMA on reddit, at least with a "known" person.

You obviously missed Lil' Jon's AMA and Snoop Lion's too.

Blue,

I am not sure if you'll see this but I just got a huge takeover ad from your site. It replaced your content and told me I'd be re-directed in 30 seconds. Adblock caught the content replacement because it wasn't ON your page (blues news is in my whitelist) so all I got was a white page with a timer.

@Efflixi

1. Some ads are dynamic based on your web history, I think although some are static. But you might be getting an ad no one else is based on your history. I've not seen that problem on the site.

2. Would help if you provided more info: OS ver, browser ver, mem amt, proc type & speed, other apps open simultaneously, etc.

3. What happens in Firefox? IE? Opera? Same behavior?

Windows 7
16GB
Core i7 2600k @ 4.4GHz
Usually no other apps open
I only use Chrome, no other browsers

Blue, I am not sure you'll see this but lately your page has been freezing my browser a lot. I have adblock turned off for your page (and only your page!) and I'm 100% positive that it's one or more ads causing the issue. Chrome just goes completely non-responsive while your page is completely black (it freezes before it can even load the background color) and the status bar says "processing request...". Once in a while it'll freeze on loading a particular ad that prevents the rest of the page from loading until it's done or Chrome simply times out.

I wish I could troubleshoot it better, being a web programmer myself I know what headaches this can cause. However, it's completely random as far as I can tell. Maybe it's a specific ad that is on rotation and whenever it comes up everything freezes. I just don't know.

Been a loyal customer to this site for more than 15 years. Just keeping you informed!

News Comments > Ships Ahoy - X Rebirth
72. Re: Ships Ahoy - X Rebirth Nov 16, 2013, 05:05 Efflixi
 
Let me just say this. I seem to be in the minority here. I wanted so much to like the previous X games but never could because they were impossible to get into. It seems like most of the people who dislike Rebirth don't like it because it's not just X3 with better graphics.

I actually prefer it this way! The WHOLE reason I bought this game is because I figured it was going to be a departure from the series. To me, this is a GOOD THING! If you LOVED the previous X games this particular may not be your cup of tea. If you liked the idea of the previous X games but couldn't play for more than 15 minutes, this game is for YOU!
